I'm uploading my mixtapes and getting zip errors after downloading for any mixtape that isn't a one-track (one-file) download. The mp3s are fine if you separately download. If there is no solution, I may need to look into other sites for hosting, because I really want my fans to be able to download the whole tape and not just one song.

Downloading is not the problem. I am unable to unzip without errors.

This one doesn't unzip, period:

I figured it out. If you use a download accelerator, it will get errors. Dowqnload it normally and it's fine.

When will archive.org support multithreaded downloads?

I was able to work around this issue by uploading a zip files in addition to the files I had already uploaded. That works fine. But the VBR zip still doesn't extract.

I'm curious why VBR zip's can't download using DownThemAll when other sites work fine with such download managers.
